1-101 | Teacher: Mrs. Filomena Mauceli | FMauceli@sfaacademy.org

Welcome to the First Grade!

At St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Academy, we are committed to quality Catholic education. The Early Childhood program begins by initiating the love of learning through literature, music, and fine arts. As a child progresses through our school and into the primary grades, age appropriate skills are emphasized. In the First Grade, children participate in a variety of group and independent learning experiences that help to develop problem solving and critical thinking skills that will assist them in the real world. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) guide us in preparing our students to be career and college ready. Read More About the 1st Grade Curriculum
